Emergency equipments contain flashlights and containers and several other equipments that are served as the basic and most primary equipment when the need arises in case of provision of basic safety. You must have heard the concept of first aid. This is one step further to this concept and gives several features to help a victim before he or she can be taken to the hospital for permanent treatment. Basically it is a temporary treatment apparatus that is often used in factories and other heavy mechanical projects. This is the responsibility of the employer to have in store at least some quantity of emergency equipments. The employer has also have some other responsibilities as well that includes providing employees with the health and safety manual, giving them training and education for the use of equipment, encouraging safety environment, providing facilities within the work environment and monitoring the compliance by employees on a regular and continued basis.
The rules and regulations surrounding the health and safety aspects of the organization especially a factory or a place where manufacturing is taking place should be in black and white. This must be communicated to the employees so as to tell them the required level of safety precautions expected from their day to day operations. This must be implemented fully and actions must be taken in case of any non compliance. The manual also needs to be updated on frequent and regular basis. If it is felt that the manual is complete and need not be revised or updated then a period must be determined after which it is considered mandatory to at least review it. This period is normally for a year because companies have several of their documents prepared on an annual basis like financial statements and also the appraisal activity is also performed on an annual basis.
